Setting Up Fusion for the First Time
Output Destinations allow you to determine where Fusion sends data Streams. You have to select at least one Output Destination in order to process tag data. This guide only directly references CT Live connection settings, so for third-party scoring software, please refer to the documentation for those programs for the proper connection settings.
Adding a Connection
Click the Settings tab on the left side of the Fusion window, then click the Add Connection button. You can also click Add Connection from the Outputs tab on the Stream tab.
In the Connection Info window that pops up, enter the Host Address string for the destination. For CT Live, this will be raceday.chronotrack.com.
Next enter the Port through which data will be streamed. For CT Live, this is 20201
Now enter a Description for the connection. This will tell you at a glance which Output you are selecting for any given Stream.
If necessary, enter a Username and Password. These are not necessary to stream to CT Live.
Finally, if your software will require a special Connection Output Format, adjust the settings accordingly. Settings include Line Mode, Field Separator, and Line Terminator. If you are streaming to CT Live, these settings do not need to be changed from their default values. Only change the Connection Output Format settings if a third-party scoring platform requires specific values.
When you're done with the Output settings, click Create Connection. The new connection will now been added in the Outputs tab on the Streams page.
To stream data to one or more of the Outputs, simply check the box next to each one two which you'd like to stream. You can click the pencil icon next to each Output to edit it at any time, or click the X to permanently remove the output.
Please note that you will need to select an Output for each Stream before you can stream the data. You can specify a Default Output on the Settings page of Fusion.
